Wrong Load reporting via KAL-AP form CSM to GSS

When multiple virtual servers are configured on the same VIP (each using another TCP port), the CSM averages all the CAPP load values when reporting the final CAPP load to the GSS.

Unfortunately, when a redirect vserver is configured on the same VIP (i.e to redirect the user to another TCP port), the CAPP load value sent to the GSS is wrong. This is due to the fact that the redirection vserver has always a load value of 2! Therefore, even if all real servers of the server farm are down, the reported load value to the GSS is (255 + 2) / 2 = 128 instead of 255 (offline).

Why does the CSM take a redirection server farm into account when reporting the load value to the GSS ? What would be a work-around ?

Here is an extract of my configuration:

serverfarm REDIRECTION

nat server

no nat client

redirect-vserver REDIR-1

webhost relocation 10.10.10.111:26000/irj

inservice

serverfarm PORTAL

nat client NAT-MSSRTE

real 10.10.10.10

maxconns 200

minconns 100

inservice

real 10.10.10.11

maxconns 200

minconns 100

inservice

serverfarm M-GLOBEPROD

Re: Wrong Load reporting via KAL-AP form CSM to GSS

Yves,

the command is under the vserver and I believe it is 'domain '.

Re: Wrong Load reporting via KAL-AP form CSM to GSS

you should use kal-ap by tag instead of kal-ap by vip.

This will allow you to really select which vserver you want the load from.

Re: Wrong Load reporting via KAL-AP form CSM to GSS

Hi Gilles,

Thank you for your suggestion. I configured KAL-AP by Tag now, but the two VIP answers configured on the GSS remain in offline state. I didn't found any description on how to configure the counterpart tag string in the CSM vserver configuration (I suppose that the same tag must be configured on the GSS and on the CSM ?)

Can you help me ?

Re: Wrong Load reporting via KAL-AP form CSM to GSS

Gilles,

Thank you very much for your support, it works now with the command Router(config-slb-vserver)# domain . May I suggest a GSS/CSM documentation improvement, in which more details could be given on the communication between the GSS and the CSM. In particular the usage of KAL-AP by VIP versus KAL-AP by Tag.

Thanks again

Yves
